Nadia Craig from Montreal just sent us a great review for her recent stay at our 18th Century village house La Maison des Deux Clochers. Merci Beaucoup et à bientôt Nadia, Ben & Josephine!
Hi Franck & Laura,
We absolutely loved our stay at La Maison des Deux Clochers. What a beautiful home you have created. We had everything we needed in the fully stocked kitchen, and slept incredibly well in your comfortable bed. The baby cot was so cute and comfy and our daughter slept well too. The binders of information were invaluable in helping us find restaurants, activities, grocery stores and, of course, winemakers!
The welcome bottle of wine was the perfect end to a long day on the road to get to your house from Brussels, on a very rainy drive. It was also one of our favourites, though sadly we didn’t make it to Naudin-Ferrand because of poor planning on our part, and weekend and a national holiday getting in the way!
We loved the location, nestled in the vineyards. Tiny Magny-les-Villers is a great jumping off point for everything in the region. We spent lots of time in Beaune, sometimes eating dinner there, other times coming home to cook the goodies we’d picked up at the market or one of the fabulous grocery stores (we loved E. Leclerc and Grand Frais).
We were lucky enough to stumble upon the wine festival in Savigny les Beaune, and spent the afternoon wandering around that beautiful town, tasting many a delicious wine, including some fabulous cremant!
Some other highlights – Patriarche wine tasting was lots of fun, so neat to see their cellars; vespers service at l’Abbaye de Citeaux was a good rainy day activity, Chateau Rochepot was a beautiful spot; and of course, the Hospice de Beaune is a must see.
Our week was not enough to scratch the surface of all the wonderful activities. We will hopefully be back again one day soon for more!
Many thanks to both of you.
Nadia, Ben & Josephine
